Worrall Travel R's - Kicking the Bucket List

My photo

We are the Worrall Travel R's Roz and Russ Worrall. Our goal before we "kick the bucket" is to see as much of the world as we are able, learn about world cultures, experience making friends around the world, and share goodwill and what we learn with others. WE HOPE YOU JOIN US VIA THE BLOG ON OUR TRAVELS.

We started our world travels in 1969 in VW camper van in the USA, Canada, and Europe, but didn't actively blog about our travels until 2009 aboard our sailing vessel SV Worrall Wind, a 44 ft Nauticat Ketch.  On September 5, 2009 we left San Francisco and took a left at the Golden Gate to Explore the World.

From to Sea to Land
After almost 4 years of cruising Mexico and the South Pacific, we sold our beloved boat in Australia, 2013. The Worrall Travel R's are continuing our travels around by many other means of conveyance -boats,trains, planes, sometimes camels, elephants, rickshaws, and hot air balloons.. 

Russ is a retired engineer, optometrist, professor from U.C. Berkeley. Roz is a retired computer programmer/analyst, educator, (teacher, administrator, professional developer). 

Our Mantra:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~ Mark Twain

Paros and Naxos - WTRD 30, Thursday, September 8

Paros and Naxos

The sky is hazy.  We set sail for Paros and Naxos.  Paros is the smaller of two side by side islands.  After a down wind sail, we arrive in Paros around 1:30, swim, and have lunch before setting off again for Naxos.  

We arrive around 3:00 pm.  There are fishing boats and nets on the dock.  There is something alluring to me about fishing nets.  Almost a work of art.

Russ and I hike to the ruins of a temple

and a castle, weaving our way through small alleys and streets where tiny tables and chairs in the alleys become seats for tiny restaurants throughout the city when the sun goes down and we see more cats than people.  

We eat dinner in a traditional Greek restaurant...Eggplant rolls baked around sticks of feta, Greek salad, bread, spicy sausages, french fires, melon, lemon cake, wine and ouzo.

As usual we are the first to return to the boat.  We shower and call it a night after another fine day.

All is Well With the Worrall Travel R's in Naxos.
